I recently started working on bot detection at Datadome
Before joining Datadome
as an R&D enginner, I was a PhD student at the
University of Lille and Inria (France).
My PhD focused on browser fingerprinting.
I explored how it can be used for tracking, as well as to improve security on the web.
In particular, a part of my work focused on using browser fingerprinting to detect bots and crawlers such as Chrome headless.
Whenever possible, I try to open source the code I write on my Github profile
